Craig Alexander

Systems Integrator and Programming

Craig started with TAG in 2009, with a BS in Computer Engineering from Washington State, designing control panels and assembling complete design packages and documentation for how work would be done, while following UL508A and 698, as well as NEC guidelines. Since then, he’s transitioned to field controls engineering, specializing in direct-to-customer projects. With those projects, Craig helps specify instrumentation, designs the system electrically, and generates a control strategy, before implementing it in the field and performing a full startup and system verification with the customer. He also specializes in communications, especially if any communications protocol gateways are involved, or if any computer programming is required, and is ABB drive startup certified. Outside of the office, Craig enjoys auto racing. He has been participating in drift events since 2010, and has driven almost every racetrack in Oregon, Washington, and Northern California. In the past few years he has also formed a Lucky Dog Racing league team, participating in several Endurance road racing events every year. Craig was even personally responsible for a large part of the roll cage fabrication and rewiring of the car to use aftermarket engine management.
